Anycubic is celebrating its 7th anniversary on 2nd September 2022 with a new online product launch.
Let’s take a look at the special anniversary offerings from the Shenzhen-based 3D printer company.
Anycubic Photon D2
First up is the Anycubic Photon D2, which is the company’s second generation DLP printer. The Photon D2 is an upgrade to Anycubic’s previous Photon Ultra. The Photon D2 continues to use Texas Instruments’ lighting solution for an in-depth exploration of a revolutionary advancement in the 3D printing industry.
The Photon D2 offers multiple advancements over its predecessor. Take a look at the list of features on the new DLP system below.
Dual Algorithms for Superior Precision
The latest light uniformity compensation algorithm significantly enhances light uniformity to 92%, which means the energy in every exposure location is almost the same, thus contributing to a more consistent print result. Additionally, the 16-step gray anti-aliasing algorithm ensures the sharp, neat, and smooth surface of printed miniatures.
Hassle-free Screen Maintenance
A DLP printer adopts a different light solution compared to an LCD printer, meaning the DLP printer needs no screen replacements. Without a consumable exposure screen, the Photon D2 uses a projector with a life span of 20,000 hours, making screen replacement a worry-free (and very occasional) task.
Larger Dimensions for Creation
The Photon D2 gives users greater room for creativity while ensuring high precision. Compared to the Photon Ultra, Photon D2’s printing size and printing area increases to 130mm x 73mm x 165mm and 95cm2, which is an increase of 162% and 55%, respectively.
Quiet and Low Power Consumption
The application of DLP technology endows 3D printers with features such as low heat generation, low noise, and low power consumption.
The heat generated during operation can be effectively controlled within 45 degrees without external fans. The Photon D2 operates at only 35 decibels, creating a quiet printing experience, and the power consumption of Photon D2 is only 15 watts, which is just 25% of the power consumption of ordinary LCD 3D printers on the market, making it low-carbon and energy-efficient.
Anycubic Kobra Go
The new entry-level Anycubic Kobra Go brings auto leveling FDM capabilities to beginners.
Leveling has always been a major challenge for new FDM printer users. To welcome and entice more users to the 3D printing world, Anycubic continues to use the technology in the Kobra series and, especially, incorporates the Anycubic LeviQ auto-leveling system into the entry-level Kobra Go at a great price point.
Fun Building, Fun Printing
Kobra Go adopts a DIY modular assembly. The DIY assembly guide helps beginners to understand better how an FDM printer works.
Smart Anycubic LeviQ
Kobra Go is equipped with the self-developed Anycubic LeviQ automatic leveling system. With the Anycubic LeviQ auto bed leveling, the leveling process has been simplified and effortless calibrating experience awaits newbies. The entire leveling procedure takes only six minutes, sparing beginners from this most challenging procedure.
PEI-coated Metal Sheet
The widely-welcomed PEI-coated metal sheet also goes with Kobra Go. The quality metal sheet is hard-wearing, shock-proof, and can withstand bending. With the magnetic printing bed, the sheet sits firmly, and when finished, users can easily take off the models by slightly bending the sheet.
Even as an entry-level product, Kobra Go makes no sacrifice with its printing speed. The typical printing speed is 60mm/s and can reach up to 100mm/s. The machine adopts the separate self-developed extruder, which further accelerates printing.
Small Makes Big
Kobra Go’s printing volume and size are 12.1 liters and 220 x 220 x 250mm, respectively, meeting various printing needs.
Anycubic LighTurbo2.0 Empowers Even Better Printing Precision
Light source technology has always been the bottleneck for LCD 3D printers to achieve higher accuracy. Anycubic’s next generation LighTurbo2.0 light source adopts a COB lens + curved reflector, which turns large angle light into small angle light. It then converts light into nearly collimated light through a curved reflector, which solves the problem of stray light interference caused by the lens and guarantees high precision printing.
Anycubic Collaborates with JBD to Explore MicroLED Application in 3D Printers
Anycubic and JBD jointly developed Anycubic’s first consumer-grade MicroLED 3D printer. The application of MicroLED in 3D printers opens up the possibility of printing miniature and microfluidic models with astonishing precision and lower costs and serves as a perfect demonstration of Anycubic’s endeavors in seeking 3D printing advancements.
Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro Provides Outstanding Performance to Professional Fields
Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro features high strength, toughness, precision, and anti-shock capabilities. Compared to the standard resin, the significantly enhanced performance allows Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro to effectively prevent parts from being damaged during usage, catering to models with higher material performance requirements.
“Anycubic keeps innovating and putting the latest patented technologies into new products,” said James Ouyang, Vice President of Anycubic.
“We introduced Anycubic’s first desktop DLP technology-backed product, the Photon Ultra, the M3 series equipped with our innovative LighTurbo light source technology, and the Kobra series adopted the LeviQ automatic leveling technology.
All of these demonstrate our solid tech strength, and there is even more to come after our 7th anniversary.”
Indeed, these are a couple of great products with much to offer both newbies and more experienced makers alike.
